The Zipper, built 1934, consider a fast hydroplane of category 225. John Hacker designed this wonderful boat for the 125 racing class. Zipper had a 47-horse motor and overall weight of 750 pounds. She illustrates the sobriety and the elegance of the runabouts of competition of the 20s & 30s. Her hull was made to increase speed and to increase stability in tight turn. Since category 225 racing competition allowed only one person on board, the architect placed the cockpits one behind the other and the aft one can be easily closed for the competitions.
